Thanks bud! Having bought the scoob for 5k @ 180k, I was going for styling and handling over sheer power. Once I was pretty much done with looks and handling, I began building my STI engine when the RS gaskets went out. Sold sti to fund rs build and now I'm looking for another sti shorty. And likewise! Bugeyes aren't rare, nor is brp. But a BRP rsti bugeye pushing at least 550 awhp? Mmmmmmmmm. Lol
